Good evening, I want to ask some things to the doctor. My father has gout and wants to try taking a herbal medicine called imove. According to my browsing results, the oat content is glucosamine HCL, ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel, Vit E and C, Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Manganese (Mn), Boswellia Serrata Resin extract, Turmeric extract Curcumin root, Chondroitin, Quercetin, L- methionine, MSM, Bromelain, and Potassium. Incidentally my father has high blood pressure, and there is a slight disturbance in the kidneys and stomach. I want to ask whether these substances have side effects to the illness suffered by my father? or what action should be taken before taking the drug? Thank you, sorry to bother.

1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for the question


At present only little information can be obtained regarding the consumption of natural supplement products in patients with impaired kidney function. Similarly, supplements containing glucosamine as the main ingredient also have no further research on the effects of long-term consumption in patients with impaired kidney function.


Glucosamine is known to be metabolized mostly in the liver, and a small portion in the kidneys. From this fact, glucosamine intake should not make the kidney work harder, so it is considered safe for consumption. Similarly, the effect on the stomach is still classified as quite safe.


However, an evaluation should be done to monitor the side effects of the drug and to assess kidney function routinely by the doctor. Another case with patients with chronic kidney disorders or who have been routinely undergoing dialysis or dialysis, it is advisable not to take additional drugs or supplements without doctor's advice.


That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
